Custom sorting in App Drawer
Sorting folders and apps in custom way, like TouchWiz. Still allow the option to sort alphabetically and folders first, but make a custom sorting in both App Drawer and inside folders in App Drawer.
In many launchers like Xperia or Galaxy there's the manual rearrangement of the applications in the app drawer. I find it very convenient. The manual arrangement also could be introduced in the folders of the app drawer.
install date (ascending)
install date (descending)

I don't like app sort by Alphabetically, We need sort by Time
Sorry! Custom sorting in App Drawer is too hard. So they won't care about this suggest.
Just wanted to add my voice to the numerous people requesting this feature. I can't imagine it requiring significant re-engineering so I'm assuming its only been ignored due to being on low priority. If that's the case I hope you guys will reconsider.
Come on... Each time nova gets an update, I check to see if this feature is added and I get dissapointed All the time... Who needs night mode... Who needs new ui...Who even asked for these???!!!! When this featured is the most requested one for "years" now. Custom app sorting is the upmost requirement of usability, specially for pro users who get used to the position of their apps. I like nova, but I hate using it. I'm happy that I didnt waste my money on a prime. Buying apex pro was the best choice I've made in years, and I'm not coming back to nova unless you add this feature
Please just add this feature already. This is ridiculous that this isn't added yet.

You can already custom sort or rearrange a folder.
You already can sort by recently downloaded.
I don't understand why everyone is going crazy over custom sorting the app draw.
When you drag and drop app to your desktop don't you custom sort it.?
I have 3 desk tops. One for my entertainment/remotes another for everything else.
And another keept nice an clean. With just a clock/weather widget.
The alternative I guess, most of us are using is Apex Launcher, it has all the basic feature needed.
Is there any app like Nova launcher with app sorting feature?

WOW! ASking for it from beginning. Nothing happen now.

Not taking a side either way, but just a QI point
When this feature was first requested in May of 2012:
65% of Android devices were Gingerbread
and 20% were Froyo...
Sadly, I think there is more chance Real Madrid wins the Spanish ligue than Nova launcher adds this basic feature.
OMG! This is basic!
I can't believe NOVA still doesn't allow sorting to app drawer by date downloaded or anything. Seriously, its 2016 and Apex has had this for 5+ years.
Absolutely shit app
Would love this
I deleted Nova from my phone. When developers add this option, I will install again.
How are you still not done, it's been a year and a month?
